Higley High selected as finalist for Best STEM School by Super Bowl Committee
“Super Bowl provides a great platform to elevate the importance of STEM curriculum in Arizona schools. We are honored to partner with Freeport-McMoRan to recognize STEM excellence and showcase 49 STEM Superheroes from around the state,” said Jay Parry, President and CEO of the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. “These Superheroes give Arizona youth an invaluable foundation to foster their future success and that’s truly a lasting legacy.”
There were 49 finalists selected from nearly 200 nominations in various categories:
Best STEM School, Most Innovative STEM Club and Most Dedicated STEM Teacher. Higley High is also the only Gilbert school selected as a finalist and one of only three from the East Valley.
Teachers at Cooley and Sossaman Middle Schools were selected as finalists for Most Dedicated STEM Teacher.
Higley High’s engineering program offers dual credit through the internationally acclaimed Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Students learn engineering skills on industry standard computers and programs, and have access to a state-of-the-art engineering lab, complete with a 3D printer and wind turbine simulator.
Classes are taught by two former engineers: Robert Frederick and Jason Sixkiller, who together launched Higley’s engineering Career and Technical Education program five years ago.
Students who have completed the three-course study are eligible to take the state Career and Technical Education certification test. Higley’s students scored at the top of all Arizona students who completed the test last year.
To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.
